. bill: according to nasa, 100 tons of meet toors of gravel and dust hit the atmosphere and the earth every single day. the smaller strikes what we saw in russia happen ten times a year. that's new. scientists believe a strike by a meteor six miles across may have been responsible for extinction of the dinosaurs 66 million years ago. in case you're wondering on a friday have something to do over the weekend you mentioned the asteroid talking about past several days. they say there is no connection between that and this meteor. we'll talk to scientists throughout the morning. heather: a lot of experts. bill: meantime, six minutes past, the nightmare is finally over. what a slow crawl this was. thousands of passengers cheering the end of a cruise ship horror scene. touching land and kissing it like the pope. the carnival cruise triumph docking last night in mobile after putting what passengers through what they call disgusting conditions. now they say they are just happy to be home. who can blame them. >> i feel great to be off the ship and just being on land and, i get to see my family
to earth. this is video of nasa tracking the asteroid as it moves across the sky -- it is about the size of a football field. at its closest point, the asteroid, which is named 20-12 d-a-14, was just more than 17-thousand miles above the earth's surface. that's lower than some satellites. and while it's too far away to see with naked eye -- there is at least one spot you can go to check it out tonight. we'll show you where -- coming up at 5:30 will you could certainly see the sun out there for today is shining brightly. warm temperatures around the bay area. it is in the '70s in many locations. san francisco not a cloud in the sky. temperatures in san francisco at 70 degrees. low '70's in a lot of places. '70s for a sunnyvale and san jose. 75 degrees in oakland. absolutely beautiful day today. it's going to hang out for most of the weekend. in the meantime look for clear skies tonight. a little bit of patchy fog and a warm day tomorrow but another warm day look for highs in the '70s. things will be pulled down in san francisco but still a warm day. and a few minutes will share next week.
is at the nasa ames center in mountain view this morning to talk to us more about the meteor and then also the timing of it all because a big space rock is headed toward earth. >> reporter: yes, that's exactly right, frank and michelle. to every you go more information about that meteor though, russian scientists say that meteor entered earth's atmosphere about 33,000 miles per hour and hit the ground. more than 700 people are recovering from the meteor's shockwaves that fall caused explosions that broke glass over a wide area and it caught most people off guard. >> terrified. i just hit the snooze bar on my iphone for another nine minutes of sleep and all of a sudden, i fell back asleep and i hear this loud bang! >> reporter: now, this comes on the same day an asteroid known as 2012da14 is headed towards earth. it will make the closest fly-by of an object its size. the meteor and the asteroid are not related. it's coincidence that they are both happening in the same time frame. researchers say this asteroid is not expected to make an impact on earth.
this afternoon around 2:25 eastern. nasa didn't know about the astroid until a year ago when an amateur astronomer just happened to spot it in our skies. but it seems a remote part of russia did get a visitor from space. at least one meteorite streaked across the sky this morning triggering powerful shockwaves. witnesses say the noise set off car alarms and broke windows and damaged a factory. at least 250 people were hurt, mostly cuts from broken glass. thousands of russian troops were put on alert. >> apparently according to the latest information we have, 20,000 first responders are being sent to the scene, three aircraft surveying the damage from the scene. again, all those folks injured from the broken glass of all the stuff that shattered during the collision. >> and it's cold there, so the people with shattered windows are in the freezing cold. so a lot going on. >>> now let's check our weather. mountain snow in the central rockies. showers from tennessee to southern illinois. heavy rain from orlando southward. snow around the great lakes and northern new england. >>> mostly 50s
waves hit us. >> reporter: >> a nasa expert joined us on fox 5 news at 5:00 and said this is extraordinarily rare. >> i have to be honest, will. i am not wear of anything in the history books talking -- not aware of anything in the history books talking about this many people being hurt by a single event. >> ironically the event happened the same day an astroid buzzed by earth closer than an astroid has since scientists started monitoring them 15 years ago. it missed earth by more than 17,000 miles coming closer than weather and communication satellites that orbit our planet. >> they not related. they're going to do more studies, but right now nasa said they don't think it's related. >> so the meteor and astroid just a strange coincidence according to scientists. in case you're wondering as we did, what's the deal with all those dashcams in the cars of average folks like you and me? turns out they're popular in russia for several reasons including disputes over traffic accidents. insurance fraud is apparently a big problem there. we're also looking at how this story f
as an asteroid that came exceedingly close to earth, at least in space terms. as this nasa animation shows, the asteroid was just over 17,000 miles away from earth, traveling at about eight miles per second, actually inside a ring of television and weather satellites that surround the planet. named da-14, the asteroid was half the size of a football field. it passed, we can happily report, without incident. here to tell us about both events is astrophysicist and author neil degrasse tyson, director of the hayden planetarium in new york city. let's start with what happened in russia. how unusual was that in terms of size and impact? >> well, we couldn't know precisely how common that would be. all we can do is sort of look back at other sort of reported such events. for example, there was an air blast that happened in the airspace over india and pakistan back in 1990s. which happened to occur while they were in intense conversations about their nuclear buildup of arm ament. and so such a blast mimics greatly what would happened with the nuclear blast. it is an instant deposit of energy in t
the kind of objects that nasa cannot predict ahead of time. they're too small to actually track. the as asteroid that's passing the earth later this afternoon is an object that nasa can pick up ahead of time and can track. by the way, the two events are not related in any way. it's just a chance circumstance that both of these happened on the same day. >> okay. well, let's talk more about this asteroid. as we said, we know that's coming. so every ten years we can expect this sort of thing that happened over russia to happen somewhere in the world and there's not much we can do about it? >> no. there's no way really to predict objects that small coming into the earth atmosphere. tellus museum here is part of the network of nasa set up with fireball cameras. we have several in the southeast. and a few in the west. and this is part of a project, an effort, to track bright meteors. and we track about 8 to 12 bright meteors every night over cartersville. but when we link it with other cameras, we can tell how fast, how high, and even plot where in the solar system these smaller objec
know. there might be a television satellite that happens to wonder into it path. although nasa has calculated we don't think it will happen. >> reporter: the asteroid is supposed to come by earth at 11:25 a.m. pacific time. it's not supposed come by here until 7:00 tonight. the next time this asteroid will come close to earth is 2046. it's not visible to the naked eye. but if you want to check it out the chabot space and science center will be open tonight. >>> time is 5:02. over night news san francisco police are investigating a frightening incident involving a stolen car. there was a chase, a crash, and gunfire. ktvu tara moriarty is here to tell us the chase ended with a multicar crash right on a busy downtown section. tara. >> reporter: it took quite awhile for the reconstruction team to figure out how this accident happened. it was pretty complex. you can see behind me even though the scene has be cleared it's still messy with medical supplies and oil and tire marks on the road. just before 10:00 last night someone stole a black town car. >> there was surveillance until they
-wide asteroid heading for earth. here's an image of the asteroid from nasa when it was more than 450,000 miles from earth. tom foreman has the details on how close it will get. >> let's get reference points. we talk about the earth many of us like to think the moon is close to us but the moon is not as close as you think. it's almost a quarter million miles away so what is close in space in satellites, we've been launching these for decades and filled the sky. some are fairly low, others quite high. the highest are communications and gps satellites, about 22,000 miles up in the air. where is this asteroid going to be? it is going to shoot out of the sky and cut right through the top of the satellite belt, at about 17,000 miles. >> an awful lot going on in the skies right now so we're joined by bill nye the science guy, is he in los angeles. bill, the meteor shower in russia, the ast noid some 17,000 miles away, i think everyone really has two questions here, first of all, is there a connection here and is there a difference between a meteor shower and an asteroid? help us out. >> oh, yeah, yea
east of los angeles. his remains were identified during an autopsy through dental records. >> nasa says an asteroid half the size of a football field will whiz by, close to the earth today. >> inside to say, while there is no cause for concern, it will pass by a remarkably close the distance. around 17,000 mi. or 27,000 kiloliters. tom foreman explains a close call. >> where is this asteroid going to be. it is going to shoot out of the sky and cut right through the top of the satellite built at about 17,000 mi.. is that dangerous? not really. in part because the size of this. the official name is 2012 the a 14. it can travel 18,000 mi. an hour. if it were to hit earth it would have a huge explosion. that would not be enough to harm the turf unless it hit a populated place. it will knock down trees and destroyed areas and several hundred miles. scientists have been tracking it for more than 2 million mi.. they say it will not hit the earth and ms. even though it is a close call. >> tonight at 7 the juchab ot space and science center will hold an asteroid during party for the 2012 da -14
are a total nerd and i think indra is, at 2:00, you can watch on the nasa website where they will track it too. and we'll track it. >> yes, we will. thank you, indra. >>> up next. a potential security flaw in the iphone 5 and its latest operating system. it exposed how password are, messages and contact list can all be hacked. bikes and balloon, wholesome noodles on spoons. a kite, a breeze, a dunk of grilled cheese. catches and throws, and spaghettio's. that's what happy kids are made of. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. try our entrees, snacks and new salads. wild salmon with basil, garlic chicken spring rolls, and now salads, like asian-style chicken. enjoy 100 delicious varieties under 400 calories. lean cuisine. enjoy 100 delicious varieties under 400 calories. for over 75 years people ...with geico... ohhh...sorry!. director's voice: here we go. from the top. and action for over 75 years people have saved money with gecko so.... director's voice: cut it! ...what...what did i say? gecko? i said gecko? aw... for over 75 year...(laughs. but still trying to keep it contained) direc
damaging. nasa and others assure us that it will not. but there is some risk that it could pop into one or more satellites. and that could change everything from gps to communications. so you have to be ready for surprises. >> is this why volume is so light, even though -- >> people are in their bunkers? >> everybody's hunkering down in front of the asteroid. no, i think the volume is light, because we're right at an uptrend line. and we're either consolidating for a break-through, which would be very important, or we're stalling and pulling back. if you go back into may of 2011, we've hit this uptrend line several times. and each time we've had a pullback that was not insignificant. >> that's funny, the journal points out, we hit 14 k on february 1st, and since then, we've gone up 141 times. you've made the point before, these psychological levels are like the hard door, and the battering ram has to hit them a few times, more than once. >> it is. people have to feel more relaxed about the fact that we've gotten here, we're moving through. you know, for old-time traders, we're not only
has been investigating nasa for the past four years. the congressmen say the u.s. attorney's office in northern californ wants to bring criminal charges, but has been blocked by the justice department. the u.s. attorney's office denies that claim. >>> several people are hurt this morning after a police chase ends with a shooting in san francisco. police say a stolen town car tried to get away from officers near the intersection of eddy and jones streets. after a short chase t car swerved on to the sidewalk to avoid spike strips. one officer shot at the car which kept going before crashing into a taxi and two other cars. the suspect is now under arrest, four other people are hurt. >>> we'll take a look at the forecast. >>> 9:28. welcome back. taking a live look at the hills in sunol. beautiful clear sky overhead. we need the rain to keep these hills green and it's on the way. but not before we get to 80 in some places. 45 degrees in san jose, 44 in gilroy. look at santa rosa, they're still at 35 degrees because we had a stubborn pocket of fog that hung out there all day. it's our tur
